Emigrate Canada - continue business in Canada

Post by taxquestions » Sat Jan 11, 2020 6:23 pm

If I emigrate from Canada > USA and sever ties to Canada but still continue my online business sales in Canada (no permanent establishment, not subject to Canadian income taxes) and want to keep my business number for GST/HST collection and remittance, would I simply change the address in my CRA business account to my US address? Or are there additional steps to be taken?

From a paid tax consultation I was told if I remain a sole prop in the US (as I did in Canada) I can keep the same business number. However, if I used a different entity (IE: LLC) I would require a new business number.
